    I'm not in the market for some more EG until after Christmas, I have the Galway in oak which I love but I would like to add probably 5 more styles in the new year

    I'm definitely after a mid brown suede chukka style boot and a monk in Bordeaux or oxblood leaving 3 more up for grabs, definitely could do with same black oxfords and some brown cap toes leaving 1 more space

    What in your view would I be missing?

    A derby in country calf or cordovan. Check out the Sandringham or Ullswater.

    The bark of the oak tree has been used as a tanning agent for tanning the sole leathers (which can take up to a year). Vegetable tanning makes the best leathers for the bottom work (insole, outsole, stiffeners).

    Don't mean to detour the dark oak group but I'd be interested if it were made in Edwardian for sure :slayer: G: Never had any luck finding pairs in my size. Anyway, I recently moved to MI so I don't have the joys of going to Barney's/Bergdorf/Saks/Leffot/Alden for my shoes... sad :cry: There is a Red Wing Shoe Shop within a 5 mile drive from me though! I'm bringing up MI style! I think the last time Shannons walked around MI was when NAMOR came for a visit.

    I am going to get a pair of Galway in Edwardian. But Shannon in Edwardian is nice too [​IMG]
    What about shaft mod, suede?

    I don't know if we have enough interest for 6 identical Shannon...

    ap10046, those are nice too but I want to stick with 82.
